Immerse yourself in two spanking new interactive installations at this Insta-worthy art and light exhibition at Future World near Marina Bay Sands
We know you’re always looking for that breathtaking backdrop for your Insta-worthy selfies – why do you think we came up with our best Instagram spots in Singapore piece? And if you’re a shutterbug who’s always looking for that out-of-this-world money shot, you’re probably already savvy with the Future World exhibition at the ArtScience Museum.
Featuring spectacular, high-tech, interactive art installations by teamLab, a Japanese art collective, a trip here always guarantees to ignite your creative spark – watch your 2D crayon art turn into animations, create your very own throne out of colour-changing blocks, and dive into curtains of digitally-controlled light particles. Yes, it’s literally lit.
Think you’ve already seen everything though? Don’t keep your cameras just yet; Future World has added two new interactive installations that are not only beautiful, but thought-provoking.
Crows are Chased and the Chasing Crows are Destined to be Chased as well, Transcending Space
Say this in one breath! Walk around (or scamper like a kid in a candy store, if you will) at your own pace in this spacey digital installation (see lead image). Feel like a character out of a Japanese myth, surrounded by a whirlwind of three-legged crows (AKA Yatagarasu) that leave trails of light and burst into colourful flowers when colliding with each other.
Definitely something to catch. They’re totally un-rideable, so don’t bother bringing your surfboards. Instead, immerse yourself and dive into these so-called living waves, simulated in a computer-generated 3D space. Don’t be surprised if you can’t distinguish this nature-soaked fantasy from reality.
